. adelson is to republicans now that we're watching the implosion of gop stalwarts like karl rove and freedom works, both of which you have reported on. >> extremely important to the republican party, as are ee emerging class of mega donors. who were spurred into giving large amounts of money, which led to the super pacs. you look no further than the week after the presidentiamç election, the governor's association was in town, in las vegas, and as we reported, three governors who are contemplating their own runs in 2016 made a trip from the wynn casino and hotel, a strong rival of sheldon adelson's sands corporation, over to the venetian, adelson's flagship, to meet with sheldon adelson. we don't know what they talked about, but bobby engine dal, john casic, and really high up on the short list of procespecte 2016ers. after the meeting we heard sheldon adelson expressed to confidantes he was favoring for 2016, a candidate with executive experience. all those guys fit the bill. incidentally, they were also visiting with him. >> great. professor, in this wall street journal articl
've been talking about the president's advantage right now. so, karl rove was not about to sit on the sidelines. his crossroads gps is running a spot today criticizing the president over his handling of the fiscal cliff. let me take a look at that. >> no real reform. instead spending taxes. we neat bipartisan ideas we can all support. >> dana, is any of that going to make a difference or maybe a broader point is how much are outside groups generally, whether it's on the hill or on tv influencing this debate? >> if it works as well as karl rove's effort during the campaign, i think the president is going to ask him to run more of those ads because it didn't work out so well for him the last time. this is a little different from a political campaign in that spending by interest groups is probably not going to be big enough to crowd out all of this noise that's being made here. i think that interview you just had with tom price was extraordinary for what he didn't say. he didn't say i won't allow taxes to increase. he said it depends on what the overall package is. that's an extra
like a plot out of a tom clancy cold war novel. a rove navy sailor is suspected of telling top-secret submarine tracking technology to the russians. nbc affiliate reporter andy fox with wavy has this story. >> reporter: robert hoffman appeared in court wearing a t-shirt with a rooster on it with the words "born to fight," in reference to cock fighting. mr. hoffman, did you try to sell government secrets? just a big smirky smile from hoffman, who retired a year ago and is trained as a navy cryptologic technician. he is able to find submarines using sophisticated direction-finding technology. the indictment reads hoffman had access to top-secret information which could cause exceptionally grave damage to national security. on october 21st, hoffman is accused of delivering secret information to people he believed to be officials with the russian federation on how to track u.s. submarines using the technology he learned on the job working for the navy. the information included the technology and procedures required to find the subs. hoffman delivered that information to fbi agents
the outset of his second term? >> well, you know, there's good news for the republicans, martin. karl rove's group, crossroads gps is going to spend some money for some ads, and we know that's a successful strategy in convincing the american people. >> that's good news. >> i can't pass that chance up to do that. >> i understand. >> i think part of what's so important about the polling, we talked about this on monday and the quinnipiac polling you were showing, the republicans have had time to make their arguments and it's not working. more people are moving towards siding with the president. they believe it's the president and democrats who are making a legitimate effort. the private has been privately and i think publicly very clear from the beginning that he's no longer going to engage in this debt ceiling hostage taking. again, i think we mostly were focused on the top 2% piece, but he's been very clear, and i thought yesterday he was brilliantly clear with the business round table by talking about what games he was simply not going to engage in. >> karen, there's one point -- the reaso
karl rove and others quoted saying we need to do something on immigration. we should do partial measures. we shouldn't go all the way to amnesty, and i think that they're reacting to a lot of blowback that they've gotten from their base as they've talked about the need to go out and make immigration reform something that they just set off the table. >> that quote is factually wrong. what this person thinks is if we have immigration reform, then you'll have more latinos who can vote. maybe you're changing the time frame, but the fact is because of the 14th amendment, anyone who is born in the united states legally or illegally is a legal citizen. you can vote. you can't stop these people from voting. they're just wrong. >> that's 50,000 hispanics turn 18 years old every month, period. that should be the only thing that is in front of the gop right now. all of this hem and hawing about what we're going to do on immigration, to me, is not the argument that we should be having. i think ed gillespie makes a good point about the strategy. >> michael. >> but having a smart strategy is
and karl rove is doing a series of ads. do you think that they can be effective or do they cancel each other out. >> well, we have remained in campaign mode since the election because we think the eaches involved in the deficit negotiation are extremely important to middle-income americans. we're trying to break through the fog of all of the political ads that have been done during this campaign season by doing something a little more, shall i say, tongue in cheek. so i think our ad is going to ask cut through that fog. i would say we're going to be outspent ten to one by the other side, maybe 20 to one. but we're in the game here. we have major mobl lilization gg on in the states. the ads are just a piece of that. >> let me ask you about entitlements. there's going to be conversations going on. we don't know what is going on in that room between speaker boehner and president obama. but at some point that conversation about medicare and medicaid is going to happen and what concerns you the most and are there any adjustments that can be made given where the finances are that you would f
the first use of the rove verse full array of analytical instruments to inspect a drift of sandy soil. some say they may have uncovered methane, and that aliens may have been decomposing. the rover is working to identify organic compounds to see if mars can support life. they have found no definitive evidence that the complex bumming blocks of life exists on the red planet. the $2.5 billion curiosity landed in august to explore a crater that has a wet history, it discovered a bed where water may have flowed thousands of years ago. president obama has set a challenge to reach in the next couple of decades. we'll have more for you throughout the day. back to you. jenna: claudia thank you. coming to us from our san francisco bureau as we learn more about what the announcement could include we'll bring you that news. jon: the 2012 election is over. now as president obama fights congress in a showdown over the coming fiscal cliff the president is using his extensive campaign network to push his agenda. let's talk about it with shane deapril the editor of "campaigns and elections magazine." the c
to be years before they can erase the sting of 2004. when karl rove sin cli used gay marriage to rally votes against the mitt romney of the democratic party of 2004. they're going to have to come out from behind that. you do that by playing defense and not offense. you say big government policies force us to do things against our values. and that's what we don't want. we don't want to impose anything going forward. they have to make that switch. they haven't yet. they have to. >> it feels to me like it breaks down on the issue of women's reproductive rights. on this question of big government. you'll hear what we want is small government, right, small enough as is our joke, on a transvaginal probe as we saw in the context of bob mcdonnell. yet, this blew me away. the quinnipiac poll off bob mcdonnell's approval rating. he's actually doing quite well with women, quite well with african-americans, quite well with young people. this is the guy who proposed the transvaginal ultrasound procedures in virginia. am i missing something here? >> voters are not -- again, that whole single issue, you ca
. >> steve: yes. i think carl rove is offering a dinner for four which would be interesting. there will be a big concert. billy joe and paul mccartney and banding together in the garden. they put tickets on sale and sold out within minutes and now scalpers out there pocketing thousands of dollars. and the money should go to sandy victims and instead people who are lucky enough to get in on the tickets they are going to be able to make a lot of dough on the backs of the victims. >> i am not sure what you would do about that. if someone said to me you want to go to the concert and the ticket was $150 and you paid $300 from a scalper. but if you paid a $1,000. we need to figure out somebody in the governor's office to call and report it, to. if they make a small margin that is fine. but hundred for a ticket and you are sold a thousand or 2000 something has to do. >> brian: if you buy it from us. any money over the face value goes to the robinson foundation. >> steve: the new york daily news and somebody telling tickets for $60,000. that money would go in theirr pocket. >> you c
